I believe Kyosho Lazer ZX6 front/rears RB6 rears. Not positive for sure as I have always used 14mm Xray rims and 14mm DEX410 V3,V4 front and rears.

Can anyone verify wether the 16 can be set up in saddl config. I am assuming it could fairly easily. Just wondering as the 16 spec kit box pictures it in saddle config.

The picture on the box is not a pic of the 2016 car. They used an old pic.

As far as putting the 2016 into saddle configuration, the 2016 car only has the option for shorty.

where can you get spare front suspension arms? A-main does not have the new part numbers....I assume they are different than the 2014-2015 ones? Anyone?

I hope no one breaks one...they don't seem to be available?

rears are reinforced around the shock hole, from the older versions..

Not sure where the front would be different.

I would be sure they older arms still fit, as the 13's will fit on a 15 without the spacer.

Front and rear arms the same, with some reinforcement around the shock bolts?

Part numbers are:
REAR
L - 363111
R - 363121
F 362112
Add a G to the part number for the "hard" graphite part

If you do a web search there's some out there.

You can pretty much find any part number by downloading the pdf manual from the website and many of the optional parts are there as well.

it looks like the new 2016 front arms are different...look at where they mount to the inner hinge pins...it looks narrower and slightly more forward now...I could be wrong....Bentka?

All a-arms have the shock mounting holes moved 0.3mm outwards to match the new geometry of the shock towers.

The front arms are also redesigned to move the shock further forward to increase overall steering.

'16 arms also have the screw holes for the carbon plates removed to increase overall strength. Optional graphite arms are being used instead.

The older '15 arms will still fit but will alter the shock geometry as well as reduce overall steering.

In the US try discount RC for a arms or call RCAmerica In Dallas.
You could always order from the XRAY-shop Austria which takes about 10 days to arrive to your door. Oh! MB models out of London they are lightning quick being 3 to 4 days to your door.

We use the optional Xray Aerodisk 12mm hex wheels which are softer and provide more grip than standard 14mm wheels.

#369912 4WD Front Wheel 12mm with +0.75mm wheel hex #365355

#369913 2WD/4WD Rear Wheel 12mm with +1.5mm wheel hex #365356

Thanks Brudda! My kit arrived from RCAmerica today thus I was a little confused by the picture.
